Photos of Julia at home and in the Ukraine

As we adjust to life at home, here is the complete photo essay on Julia's journey home, organized into more manageable albums so you can pick the phase or topic that interests you.

Albums in order of interest (as they relate to Miss Julia of course):  The names are fairly self explanatory   - This one will continue to grow over the next few months as we settle into life at home - The princess on the road towards home - pictures of our visits to the orphanage - both trips - the orphanage and villages around where she lived - some of the wonderful people we met along the way - City of Julia's birth, and our time there - former Soviet capital of the Ukraine - Current/historic capital of Ukraine - Kyiv (Kiev in former days)

There will be more updates and captioning as we get time, but wanted you to have access to these.


  1. Thanks for posting these albums- so nice to see photos. It's especially touching to see how happy Julia is at home, with her brothers and sisters. Truly a new life for this princess! :)

  2. Hi! I have been sitting here enjoying your photos. What a beautiful family you have. I still cannot believe the similarities in our interests. :) Your daughter is gorgeous and I am so happy for her and for you guys.
